St. Mark Feast Day Ideas for Kids

St. Mark’s feast day is coming up on April 25. His symbol is the lion. It’s usually a winged lion, but I didn’t find any of those on the internet- lol! So here are some lion ideas to celebrate his feast day with your kids. Be creative and add wings to what you can. Then send me the pictures 😉 You can find all of my resources for living the liturgical year in April here. Now let’s take a look at these St. Mark feast day ideas for kids!
